Flavoured Yoghurts in Australia for the Dukan Diet

This is a quick post to give you information from Laura about some fruit yoghurts she has found that are suitable to use on the Dukan.  Laura’s email is copied below but please also read Ben’s comment and my reply.  It seems some of these yogurts have more than 7 g of carbs per 100 g so care is needed.

Hi Amber

I thought I would just share with you something I found in a supermarket today
(I am sure you have a lot of other Aussie followers on here so I thought it
would be the best way to get a message to them all).

I found a set of 6 fruit flavoured yoghurts in Woolworths Supermarket. All six
of then are less than 2g fat per 100g and 6g or less of natural sugar per 100g
(contains no cane sugar).

The brand is Tamar Valley and it comes in a pack of 6 flavours.

I was very excited about this because all other low fat, natural sugar fruit
yoghurts I have looked at have over 10g sugar per 100g which as we all know is
too much for Dukan.

Hoping you can share for the Aussies you have on the site / facebook 🙂

      Hi Nina

      If the fat and carbs are OK you can ignore the ingredients for yogurt.

    Hi Amber – 4 out of the 6 flavours in the Tamar Valley yoghurts are under the 7% with the other 2 just over. The % that have been provided by Ben I, would suggest, are an average of all 6 flavors or of one of the 2 flavours that is slightly higher. I have successfully lost 20 kg and on Dukan and have kept it off now for 9 months.

    • Amber on October 2, 2014

      Hi Laura

      Thanks for clarifying this and sharing your success.

    Hi Amber. I am so grateful to you and this website to help me successfully maneuver my way through the Dukan diet. I am trying to add variety and have been checking out some of the greek yogurts out there. Please let me know if I can eat Dannon Light and Fit Banana Cream. Here is the nutritional info:
    80 calories
    0g fat
    9g carbs 7g sugars
    12g protein

    Thanks!

    • Amber on July 21, 2014

      Hi Robin

      A serving size is 150 g so this yogurt does come under the 7% carbs/2% fat rule and can be eaten.

  • Lori Anderson on May 10, 2014

    Hi I was wondering if anyone could tell me where you can buy creme fraiche (no fat or low fat) from in Melbourne Australia. I have been on the Dukan diet now since 24/3/14 & lost 10kgs but have plateaued. I keep yo yoing losing 600gms one day then gaining it back over the next couple of days. I find if I eat fish not red meats I have my biggest weight loss these days. I would like to lose another 8 kgs. Dukan says another 6 will do it. Must admit am a little confused reading the next phases of the diet……although have a long time to go until I reach that phase.

    • Amber on May 11, 2014

      Hi Lori

      As I live in the UK I’m not going to be able to help you find the creme fraiche. It is not unusual to yoyo on Cruise as protein foods are diuretic and vegetables have the opposite effect. Try to limit the vegetables eaten on PV days to 1/3 of your intake and stick to white protein eggs/fish/chicken/dairy as much as possible until you break through the plateau.

      Just let me know what is confusing you about Consolidation and I’ll see if I can help.

      Best wishes

      Hi Lori; if your platueing try walking 40 minutes a day for a week instead of your 30! It shocks the body back on track and you should start to lose again

  • Leonie on May 4, 2014

    Hi Amber,

    I live in the Netherlands, and most of the products you post are not available here, so what do I need to look for for all my packaged foods, under 7% carbs, and also under 7% fat, or does that needs to be lower than 7%? And is there a difference for % of carbs and fat between different kinds of products, or is it the same for everything?

    Leonie

    • Amber on May 4, 2014

      Hi Leonie

      For dairy you are looking for 2% or less fat content and 7% or less carb content. Other foods don’t really have carb or fat limits as they are naturally low in carbs or fat.

      Kind regards

  • Laila on March 25, 2014

    HI.
    In Norway we can buy Yoplait double 0% with fibre. This is a yoghurt with berries, but with no sugar and no fat. Hope this is ok.
    Forgot to tell you, but I’m in fase two.

    I also add one tablespoon pure wheet fibre to keep my stomac ok. Have lost 9 kg (in 5 weeks) so far, but this last week – nothing.

    • Amber on March 26, 2014

      Hi Laila

      I’ve checked and all flavours of these yogurts have less than 7% carbs so are fine to eat in any phase. Wheat bran is allowed to help combat constipation so no worries there either.

      It is not unusual to go through phases when your weight loss slows down. The important thing to do is to stick to the diet and not give up.

      Best wishes

    Hi Amber,
    What a great site you have set up! I completed all phases of Dukan in Sept 2012 and am a firm believer I dropped to 58.5 kg from 67 at my leanest and have maintained at 59.5 – 60.5 kg since then (my true weight is 62kg). However recently I have been feeling a little ‘podgy” even though I do one PP day a week and still watch my carbs. When I hopped on the scales my weight had climbed to 62.4!! I decided I would do 3 days of the attack phase which I started yesterday and have already started dropping again. I have been searching the web to see if anyone else has also had to do this but with no luck. I am wondering what your thoughts or your readers are? Thanks.

    • Amber on March 12, 2014

      Hi Kerrie

      A couple of extra days of PP here and there to help keep your weight under control is a good idea when you are eating normally. (For those not on Stabilisation, extra PP days when you’re on the dieting stages are not a good idea.

      Best wishes

      Hi Ben

      I put the information provided by Laura on the site in good faith. Based on the information you’ve provided these yogurts are just the wrong side of the 7% carbs allowed. My advice would be to add it to some plain sweetened fat free yogurt and you’ll then find yourself with a yogurt under 7%.

    after searching high and low and coming up empty handed in california for a fruit flavored yoghurt that did not have more than the allotted sugars, i have stumbled upon what seems like a bit of heaven. buried well behind all the lovely (& forbidden) wine bottles in our cellar was an old bottle of torani flavored syrup from italy (commonly used in italian sodas & coffees). it met all the requirements (zero calories/zero everything) as it is sweetened with splenda/stevia. pouring just one tablespoon over my standard plain non-fat greek yoghurt tasted like dessert! this particular flavor was raspberry, but i rushed right out to our local cost plus world market and found over a dozen zero calorie varieties, from various fruits to s’mores & even pumpkin pie! just to make sure i wasn’t biased as a desperate-for-variety-dieter, i served it to my children with a bit of whole foods granola, apple slices and a dollop of fresh creme fraiche on top and they raved about it, my littlest even asking if it was ok for them to be eating sweets before supper!

    • Amber on September 21, 2013

      Hi Paige

      There are other syrups available too. Those made by Walden Farms are also very popular with those on low carb diets like the Dukan Diet. http://www.waldenfarms.com/

      These are the tricks that you need to continue after you’ve moved into Stabilisation as it will help you to maintain your weight while being able to enjoy other treats.

      Have a great weekend.

      Best wishes

      Amber:)
